Vivid Voices presents the first in its new webinar series from Vivid Resources, You Can’t Get There From Here, featuring Richard Saul Wurman, moderated by Dan Klyn and presented by Laura Hunter.
You Can’t Get There From Here – A Conversation on Information Architecture, Innovation, Information, and the Future of UX
Today’s ubiquitous modalities of “web browser” and “iPhone” pale in comparison to the information experiences TEDsters marveled at 30 years ago. As far as Richard Saul Wurman is concerned, the next modality for interacting with and understanding information is one that we can’t get to from here. So: how do we get there? In this webinar discussion with Mr. Wurman, Dan Klyn of The Understanding Group (TUG) and the panel will ask Mr. Wurman those questions.
Richard Saul Wurman is an American architect and graphic designer who has written, designed and published 90 books, created and chaired countless conference gatherings (including the TED conference circa 1984-2002), and re-invented seemingly mundane information products like travel guides and the yellow pages.
Mr. Wurman believes that when it comes to information, interaction, and understanding, the future we want to live in is a future that we can’t get to from today’s paradigm of websites and apps and iPhones.
Who’s going to find this better future first? What kinds of innovation are required to get there. This Webinar discussion with Mr. Wurman will ask those questions.
